Even though I’m getting tired of this winter and want all the snow to melt, I do have to admit that freshly fallen snow is very pretty. The rhythmic pattern, such as in the above picture, reminds me of the fact that I have always liked to have a first glance of the snow in the yard before the natural patterns were broken with footprints.
Similarly, with my Ataxia, when I get into a rhythm, I need to keep it. For instance, if I’m walking along with a line of people keeping a set pace, I’m fine, but if that line should suddenly stop, there better be something to grab onto because I’m going to fall! Abrupt changes, or irregularities, are a no-no!
